From 250 to 150 B.C., the Adena people constructed a burial mound by moving 60,000 tons of earth. The resulting formation, the largest conical burial mound in the country, is located in the middle of the namesake town of Moundsville, West Virginia. Although the Grave Creek Mound, as it is now called, attracts spectators from miles around and is the showpiece of the locals, it is not the only noteworthy feature of the town. Fokker Aircraft Factory, the Fostoria Glass Company, United States Stamping Company, and the Marx Toy Company were all located in Moundsville and nearby Glen Dale, and many of the employees were town residents. The area is also home to the old West Virginia Penitentiary, which is now a national historical landmark, and the Daily Echo, a country newspaper that has been the voice of the community for more than 100 years. The county seat of Marshall County, Moundsville is a Southern town immersed in history and full of people dedicated to its preservation.

In 1891, Moundsville, West Virginia attracted many businesses to the "booming" economy of that time. These business leaders saw an opportunity to become prosperous as the community had the necessary ingredients to develop a successful business venture. The Shaw family saw an opportunity to start a newspaper business in the community. While others like the Dalzell's with Fostoria Glass, the Beam's with a drugstore, the Bloyd's in clothing and the Grisell's with the funeral business, would all try to create new businesses in this river town. Today, only two of these businesses still survive. But their effect on our home town memories is lasting. We all read the Echo, or would work at Fostoria Glass for a short time before getting other jobs in the town or make the glass business a lifelong career. Students remember going to Beam's drugstore for a cherry soda or having your parents take you to WV Clothing and have the staff help you select new clothing. The Grisell's were providing a service that helped a family get through the toughest time in their lives and were and still are a "class act." The legacy left by these families still survives in a Cultural Arts Center, a walking trail, public buildings and community mentoring for church and civic organizations and projects. These early families helped shape our town and provided invaluable leadership when it was needed.
